Operation Finish all the Games, July 2014
details
http://ic.pics.livejournal.com/lampbane/135127/63934/63934_300.jpg
It's the first day of August so it's time for another update on how this project is going. Oh, to be young and have summers off, because then I'd be playing games all the time and my backlog wouldn't stand a chance. Alas, I am an adult with adult responsibilities and summers mean nothing. Nothing! Well, they mean longer days and having to put the air conditioner in the window.
The basic rules:
  1. Beat or finish one game a month. To...

Operation Finish all the Games, May 2014

So it's a few days late, but you'll have to forgive me -- I was out last week, and yesterday was Apple day: http://www.engadget.com/event/wwdc2014/articles/
So anyway, it's time for the latest update on my quest

Six months down and still doing this! If this was a New Year's resolution, it would be the most successful attempt I've ever made. Which might be why I didn't make it a resolution, because I actually wanted to stick with it.... Read more →

If you're a Nintendo DS or Wii owner, and any of your games use online features, I suggest you enjoy one last Mario Kart race, download all the weekly Professor Layton puzzles and wrap up any outstanding Pokémon trades you've got on the Global Trade Station because that's all going away tomorrow.

[FINISH ALL THE GAMES]
So I've just wrapped up the fifth month of trying to plow through my backlog. I'm actually quite proud of myself, though not as much as I will when I've been doing this for a year, or have finished up my backlog, whichever comes first.
A quick recap of what this is all about:
  1. I have to finish or beat at least one game a month. That...

http://ic.pics.livejournal.com/lampbane/135127/63934/63934_300.jpg
So, here I am in month two of my project to tackle my backlog of unplayed or unfinished video games. If you're just joining us, here's last month's post: http://www.engadget.com/discuss/operation-finish-all-the-games-december-2013-1myy/
But, a quick recap of the rules:
  1. Beat or finish one game a month. To "beat" means to undertake the actions that usually end the basic story and prompt a credits scroll.
  2. Only story sequences count, no...

Radiant Historia a must-have for all DS owners who like JRPGs
details
Wow, I picked up a used copy of Radiant Historia for the DS a few months ago and have been slowly chipping away at it. I am now about 20 hours in and am absolutely hooked. This has easily become my favorite RPG ever. The story and character development are even better than my previous favorites, Final Fantasy IV (aka II), Final Fantasy VI (aka III), Final Fantasy VII, Chrono Trigger, and even Cosmic Fantasy 2 (an old TG16 CD game that had my favorite story up until now).
I have tired over the... Read more →

Suggestions for the best NDS Lite homebrew adapter?
details
Picked up my R4 tonight after having it sit in a box for a year or so now and it no longer works, so I'm looking to replace it. I've heard good things about the CycloDS Evolution, but have had my ear pulled away from the scene for so long now that I don't know what I'm looking for. Help!

L+R buttons busted... fix or game suggestions?
details
Yeah, so my L+R bumpers stopped working a long time ago, and the DS has been mostly collecting dust. I'd like to revive it. If anyone knows a fix and can post a link, that would be great. Barring that, suggestions for awesome games that do not use the L+R buttons would be good. Thanks in advance for any advice.

Future Games
details
For the past few months I have stopped using my DS because, for the most part, I don't see anything good coming out in the future. I am actually really excited for Scribblenauts, which should be coming out in the fall but besides that I don't see much. What are your thoughts? Any good games coming out that I have over looked?
